My name is Tom Harkins. I've been teaching Spanish since 2001, and I feel lucky to have been here at the Lyme School since 2008. When I'm not here at school, I spend most of my time trying to keep up with my own three sons. Please reach out to me at any time with questions, ideas, or concerns.
I try to make my classes fun, low-anxiety, and chock-full of meaningful, comprehensible, language. The emphasis is on listening comprehension in the early stages of instruction, and speaking proficiency starts to develop later. We create a lot of stories, sing songs, play games, and watch videos - all in the name of Spanish proficiency!
